alcohol is a known quantity...it tastes good...its legal...its even in the Bible...its a downer and most people will simply fall asleep...

I know that drunk drivers kill themselves and others while DUI...but driving drunk is already a crime and people go to jail for it...

but drugs?....drugs can affect everybody differently....

we must stop acting like drugs are just like alcohol...nothing like it....

until as a population, we starting getting a little more God fearing and God loving, and live moral lives, and that means not self medicating ourselves into oblivion, then we're just a huge boulder rolling downhill...

Alcohol’s effects aren’t that universal. Not only do different people have different reactions, different types, because of the side chemicals, strengths, and rates of ingestion, create different effects in the same person. That’s where the old line “gin makes a man mean” comes from. My wife tends to be highly irritable with tequila but not with anything else. Anything carbonated (beer, champagne) hits the bloodstream faster so you have a more abrupt run, though with the low level of alcohol in beer it’s generally the easiest to control your level of intoxication.

Drugs are just like alcohol, sought by people who want reality “tweaked” a bit, and no two people have the exact same experience.
